Anemone Red Corms, 20 Pack

$28.00

This pack contains 20 anemone corms.

Vibrant red flowers. People often mistake these for poppies, but of course,  they're anemones! In my opinion, they're much sturdier and long-lasting and therefore better than poppies!

Instructions for planting: The best time to plant anemones depends on where you live. In North Carolina's Zone 6, we plant from October until late February.

A soil thermometer is invaluable in determining the best conditions for your anemones. They prefer soil temperatures between 45 and 60 degrees. If your soil reaches 60 degrees in April (Georgia), then you can plant anemones in the fall. If your soil freezes deeply for long periods of time during the winter (Minnesota), then you should plant during early spring.

Before planting, anemones like to soak in water for about eight hours. If you have an aquarium bubbler that can oxygenate the water, even better! We also dip them in RootShield and Actinovate prior to planting. These treatments are not necessary, but they prevent rot

We pre-sprout our anemones in crates or flats of soil in a cool, dark place like an unheated basement or garage for about 2 weeks prior to planting out. This step is not required.

Plant in full sun and well-draining soil that's been amended with an aged compost and an all-purpose fertilizer. Space corms 6-9 inches apart at a depth of approximately 2 inches. Plant pointy side down.

Protect the foliage from deep freezes. Agribon and frost cloth are great for this purpose -- just make sure the fabric doesn't touch the plants. You can use hoops or stakes to hold up the fabric.

Anemones are happiest when the soil temperature is between 45 and 60 degrees.
